Dubai-based carrier set to operate to a total of 40 destinations worldwide
Emirates on Thursday added ten more cities to its scheduled flights, taking the total number of destinations for travellers up to 40.
The Dubai-based carrier will be offering passenger flights to Colombo (from June 20), Sialkot (June 24), Istanbul (June 25); Auckland, Beirut, Brussels, Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City (all from July 1); and Barcelona and Washington DC (both from July 15).
Emirates' flights from Sri Lanka, Vietnam and Pakistan will only carry outbound passengers to the UAE and onward destinations.
Adnan Kazim, Emirates' chief commercial officer, said: "Thanks to the UAE authorities' support and partnership, Emirates has been able to provide smooth and safe journeys for those who need to travel, and we look forward adding flights to more destinations in the coming weeks.
“The UAE government's recent announcement to ease travel for UAE citizens and residents show the thorough approach that our country is taking with regards to resuming economic activities, and as we gradually return to regular services, Emirates' number one priority will always be the health and safety of our customers, our crew and our communities."
In addition, Emirates will add flights to the following cities in July: London Heathrow, Manchester, Frankfurt, Paris, Zurich, Madrid, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Dublin, New York JFK, Toronto, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore and Hong Kong.
Customers can book to fly between destinations in the Middle East, Asia Pacific and Europe or the Americas, with a connection in Dubai, as long as they meet travel and immigration entry requirements of their destination country.
